Golden State was +1000 on the money line on DraftKings Sportsbook and return huge value to whoever put faith in the power of Steve Kerr.

If you by some act of God had the Golden State Warriors pulling off the road upset over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. Well, go play the lottery immediately. The Dubs were EXTREMELY LONG underdogs to win this game. Like stupid long. Like +1000 on DraftKings Sportsbook to win this game on the money line. The spread was up over 15 points in favor of the Nuggets at home.

Andrew Wiggins (48.25 DKFP) had his best game as a Warrior, dropping 22 points with five rebounds and 10 assists in 34 minutes. He was another $7K range DFS option that returned big value on the slate Tuesday. Eric Paschall joined the party for once, scoring 22 points of his own. The Dubs got contributions from four other youngsters, all scoring in double figures to help pull off the upset.

The Nuggets had an off game overall, both on defense and offense. Nikola Jokic finished with 16 points, 13 boards and seven dimes for 47.75 DKFP. Jamal Murray was ice cold from the field, shooting 3-14, including an arctic 0-6 from 3-point range. Denver allowed Golden State to shoot over 50% from the field as a team, including 43.9% from downtown. This is a game the Nuggets will want back because now the Clippers are ahead of them in the West for the No. 2 seed after a win over the Thunder. Yikes.
